WASHINGTON, D.C. — A US postal worker was pistol whipped, robbed and kicked all over his body in Northeast on Saturday by suspects who are still at large.

The victim reported that he was walking down the sidewalk in the 2300 block of 2nd Street when two suspects asked if he had rubber bands. When he went to give them some, the first suspect pointed a gun at his head and made him lie down. When the victim laid down, the gunman pistol whipped him in the head.

The two suspects then kicked the victim all over his body and took his phone, wallet, shoes, pants, money and Postal Service satchel. When they were done robbing him, the victim tried to flag down a passing vehicle, but the suspect fired a shot into the air.

The victim ran away and flagged down DC police, and the suspects fled in a different direction. Police canvassed, but didn’t find anyone.

Anyone with information is asked to call 1-877-876-2455. A reward of up to $50,000 is offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction of those responsible for this assault.
